One of These Things Is Not Like the Other

Today's holiday honors the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, given in Washington in 1963, he expressed his longing for the day when people would be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. Today in ceremonies marking King's birth, New Orleans Mayor Ray "Busses" Nagin said, "It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans -- the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans. This city will be a majority African American city. It's the way God wants it to be. You can't have New Orleans no other way. It wouldn't be New Orleans."

Does anybody else see a disconnect here?

If we rebuild a chocolate New Orleans, will there be a white chocolate section, a dark chocolate section, a semi-sweet section....?????
